Description

2016, Getting a record deal was not the easiest of tasks in the 1970s, especially if you were based in the mid-west of America with no real prospect of getting heard by industry big wigs at labels in New York or Los Angeles. Issued in 1977, the album boasts powerful riffs and memorable songs, the sort of thing that elevated Aerosmith, Ted Nugent and Kiss to superstar status during a time when rough and tumble hard rock was all the rage. THE BAND MILWAUKEE MADE FAMOUS, may have been a bit of a mouthful at the time but, to those in the know, it made perfect sense, being a humorous parody of a famous advertising hook used by one of the many Beer breweries based in the city. The album sold reasonably well, even making the Billboard charts, but Bad Boy didn't become a house hold name. This album did, however, provide an opportunity for them to record an impressive follow up, BACK TO BACK.
